Shows I’m Gonna Watch With Mom This Long Weekend!
Mom has a DVR that she uses to record television shows for us to watch together. She watches the show and I get to cuddle/spend quality time with her. Sometimes I get a piece of cheese ... Yum.
This is the line up that we’ve got planned:
1. “Medium”: We have one episode to watch.
2. “CSI: Miami: There are three episodes of this show waiting for us.
3. “CSI: New York”: There’s just one of these waiting in the queue.
4. “NCIS”: We’ve got two of these to watch. Mom likes Mark Harmon.
5. “Veronica Mars”: We became hooked on this show first because it’s taped locally, but more so because it’s really good.
6. “Gilmore Girls”: I think that we’ve gotten way behind on this show ... We’ve got three episodes to watch to get up-to-date.
7. “Cold Case”: Like #6, we’ve gotten pretty far behind.
8. “Shark”: Mom says that she’d watch James Woods read the phonebook for an hour. The man must be starving because he sure does chew the heck out of the scenery.
9. “Supernatural”: Just one episode of this show because Mom tends to watch ‘em as soon as they’ve been taped.
10. “Crossing Jordan”: We’ve got one show to watch from this series, but Mom’s a bit ticked at the writers for killing off Leslie Bibb’s character. There’s too much death in the world.
11. “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip”: Another beautifully cast ensemble. Mom and I enjoy listening to Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford deliver their lines. Poetry ...
12. “Numbers”: Three weeks worth of this show to watch. It’s nice to see Kathy Najimy in a program that showcases her expressiveness. She’s the reason behind Sparky Fuzzypant’s name, by the way.
13. “The Knights of Prosperity”: Two words -- Donal Logue. Mom, for some reason BEYOND my reconning, thinks that he’s brilliant in this show. Go figure ...
'Cuz you wanted to know:
In October of 1999, there was an episode of an NBC show called "Veronica's Closet" with Kirstie Alley featuring a character played by Kathy Najimy (Olive Massery) who's having a birthday. Veronica ends up getting her a sweet little kitten with long, fluffy fur. At the end of the episode, Olive scoops him up and nuzzles him addressing him as "Mr. Fuzzypants."
When Mom and Grandma found Sparky Fuzzypants, Grandma wanted to name him Sparky because he was found on July 3rd. As he grew, he developed furry pantaloons. When Mom saw the episode of "Veronica's Closet," Sparky got his middle name. So essentially, Kathy Najimy named him. Get it?
